The Python interpreter can read zip files.
This is what I do myself. I zip the entire Python library and embed it inside my application. Then I extract it at run-time in a temporary directory, then I point the Python interpreter to it using Py_SetPath.
I thought it would be possible to do without the extracting to a temporary directory, i.e. doing it all in-memory...
I'm pretty sure this "just works", you put the name of the zip file in sys.path, then it will internally open the zip (without extracting to a temp location) and search for the relevant module - I don't know much (read: anything) about Py_SetPath, but I'm assuming it's the same.
